Health Desk- 21 Nov 2020: Canada expects to receive six million doses of COVID-19 vaccines by March 31, 2021 under existing purchase contracts, but their use depends on regulatory approval, a federal official said during a parliamentary committee meeting on Friday.

President of the Public Health Agency of Canada Iain Stewart said, ‘We have contracts that request vaccines by March 31st, but they have to be approved for use in Canada, and that regulatory decision has yet to be taken’.
